The ruling party noted that the rally was held by the opposition party in the time countries all over the world are coordinating measures to contain the global pandemic.
APC noted that the virus had forced the Federal Government to cancel the NYSC orientation camps, National Sports Festival, and place a travel ban on travellers from 13 countries.
The spokesperson of the party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, stated that PDP’s decision to hold the rally is shocking at this time that the world is making an effort to contain the pandemic.
He said, “Events in most countries of the world and instructions being given by the Nigerian government do not support this criminal activity. Obviously, the PDP is incapable of applying itself to rules and commonsense.”
“As the APC-led government is making efforts to put in place a new national order for good governance and patriotic citizenship, PDP, living up to its legendary infamy, has continued in its malicious ways.”
“How could any group choose this period to pull a crowd together? What is at stake at this moment that requires this level of risk-taking? Why do the leaders of PDP not realise this action is capable of putting the entire country in jeopardy?”
APC accused PDP of behaving badly and clueless for taking actions that violate all known moral principles.
The party called on Nigerians to plead with PDP leaders to be responsible for once and apply some intelligence to their actions.
